Which Focault book should I read?


Michel Foucault

Michel Foucault, born in Poitiers in 1926, became a professor in Clermont-Ferrand and Vincennes after studying philosophy and psychology. In 1970 he received the chair in the history of systems of thought at the College de France. Influenced by Karl Marx, Sigmund Freud, Friedrich Nietzsche and Martin Heidegger, Foucault examined the power structures and control systems of Western society. His critique of modern discourse was groundbreaking. His most important works include "Madness and Society", "Surveillance and Punishment", "The Order of Things" and the trilogy "Sexuality and Truth." Michel Foucault died in Paris in 1984.
